Oprah for President: Twitter erupts

Oprah for President: Twitter erupts

In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the WHCD.

Bring it on, the White House said Monday, welcoming a would-be battle against Oprah Winfrey for the presidency in 2020.

"I'd never seen a black man being celebrated like that", Winfrey said.

Since Sunday night, Hollywood, liberals and ardent fans have been abuzz with speculation that the billionaire chat show queen is harboring Oval Office ambitions. When asked about the viral moment - Winfrey2020 was trending on Twitter - Winfrey gave a quick dismissal about running to Bloomberg. And the "Oprah for president?" possibility was a top story on morning TV.

It was clear from the first victor that it was going to be her night.

That idea only gained more traction when her longtime partner Stedman Graham told the Los Angeles Times early Monday that "she would absolutely do it". So if that's true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! "I just think the world of her". "But now she doesn't have a choice".

The family members of the accused in their statement claimed that he was mentally ill for years and he often tortured his parents. Maity is expected to appear at the Haldia Court later today, after which he will be taken to Mumbai via transit demand.

A joking reference to Oprah Winfrey as a future US president has sparked an apology from NBC.

NBC later took down the tweet, and issued a statement, saying that it had been a mistake.

A March 2017 poll by Quinnipiac University that handed Trump a 41 percent job approval rating, said 52% of respondents had a favorable opinion of Winfrey.

She indicated that the same thought had crossed her mind after Trump's election: "I thought, 'Oh gee, I don't have the experience, I don't know enough.' And now I'm thinking, 'Oh".

Trump himself has praised Winfrey on several occasions, even once floating her as a possible vice presidential pick before his own official entry into politics.

Raised in Nashville, Milwaukee and MS, she was raped as a 14-year-old by an uncle and became pregnant, until she miscarried the baby.

Seth Meyers and his wife Alexi Ashe attend The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 7, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.

"Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast", the network said.

Oprah Winfrey's speech rocked the Golden Globes Sunday evening, fueling speculation that the influential media mogul could have her sights set on the 2020 presidential race.

She expressed gratitude for Taylor and all the women who were silenced when they spoke out about powerful men, the women who worked in factories, farms, as domestic workers and in academia, whose names will never be known. But her hopeful message - "A new day is on the horizon" - could have doubled as a campaign rallying cry.

What she lacks is political experience.

"There is money around for Oprah, Michelle Obama and George Clooney - but the odds suggest The Donald is going to be hard to beat", said Rupert Adams, spokesman for global betting chain William Hill.
